Top 300 Comics for April 2009

Diamond Comic Distributors sent Major Spoilers the breakdown of comics sold during April 2009.  Not surprisingly, Marvel Comics took the largest portion of the market share for the month, selling 40% of the all issues sold.  DC Comics did better than last month by capturing 28% of the quantity share.  From there, the scraps were picked up by rest with Dark Horse and IDW Publishing battling it out for the number three spot. While the chart may not look good for DC, they can take comfort in the realization that the Neil Gaiman Detective Comics issue, and Flash Rebirth #1…

Top 300 Comics for March 2009

Diamond Comic Distributors has sent Major Spoilers the breakdown of the top 300 comics for the month ending March 2009.   DC’s Batman: Battle for the Cowl #1 sold well, but not enough to beat Dark Avengers #3 and New Avengers #51 (both Dark Reign tie-ins).  It, Justice League of America #31, and Dark Horse’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer #23 were the only non-Marvel titles in the Top Ten for the month, which means, once again, Marvel took the month with a 47% hold on the direct market. As reported a few days ago, IDW Publishing had a nice run for…

Top 300 Comics for December 2008

Diamond Comic Distributors has released its breakdown of comics sold in December 2008.  As the year ended, Marvel once again rode the gravy train to success capturing almost 50% of the unit share, while DC limped in with a 31% showing. With the low showing from the other publishers, it is a wonder they’ll survive with Diamonds new minimum order declaration. The top seller of the month was the closing chapter of the Secret invasion, while the opening chapter to Dark Reign took third place.  DC wedged between the two with Final Crisis #5, and had a pretty decent showing…
